Bear Cub

Partial day camp for children ages 4 - 6.

DETAILS

Bear Cub helps guide children as they discover animals throughout the zoo. Each curriculum has a theme; the lens through which campers will build skills such as mindfulness, peer collaboration, empathy and scientific inquiry. A daily routine including morning circle, bathroom breaks, snacks and lunch will help set campers up for school year success. While the daily routine is the structure of the curriculum there is day to day flexibility which allows instructors to focus on campers’ immediate needs and interests; each day is a new adventure.
